The New Year’s Custom of Momogeroi at the Benaki Museum
THU 10/01/2019

A few days after the end of the Twelve Days of Christmas or the period between Christmas and the Epiphany, members of the Cultural Association of Tetralofos will come from Kozani to the Benaki Museum of Greek Culture in order to  prolong the festive feeling  and give us their greetings for the New Year.

A small group of masquerade wearing “fustanella” (Greek kilt), named "Mogogeri" or "Kotsamania" with their elaborate helmets, accompanied by musical ornaments, bring to life aspects of the ancient customs that their ancestors transferred from Pontos to their new homelands in Kozani region.
